That Regrettable Little 9/11 Thing


In my articles on and right after September 11, 2001, I made several predictions.

First, I said no one in the intelligence community who let this happen would even be criticized for it. They would just be given bigger budgets and more power and promotions.

This is the third anniversary of 9/11. Everybody in the intelligence community has been given more money, more power - the Patriot Act, for instance - and the commission on 9/11 seriously criticized nobody. All the experts who let 9/11 happen, ALL of them, have been living in Fat City ever since.

The INS, FBI, and CIA committed criminal neglect, not to mention treason, when they withheld information from each other that could have prevented 9/11. Well, we are told, that is just a regrettable little drawback of "the culture of the intelligence community."

I guess we can all kick back and say 9/11 was a regrettable little drawback of "the culture of some Moslem groups."

Do we all feel better now?

I don't. The INS people who let the mass murderer John Malvo immigrate into the United States illegally should be in prison. The INS or FBI agents who did not communicate to the CIA or other agencies that they had the 9/11 terrorists under surveillance should be in prison. But I am willing to bet most of them have been promoted by now.

If you want to end those "regrettable little drawbacks of the intelligence culture," put some people in the slammer. If agents were afraid to share information because their higher-ups wouldn't let them, put their higher-ups in prison. This is not a "regrettable incident." This is criminal negligence.

The point is, somebody goes to jail for a long stretch. We can let the courts sort out who goes to prison.

If you do something driving your car that gets somebody killed, nobody will tell you it was "a regrettable incident." You will be in court and you will be in deep, deep trouble.

But when someone in government gets 3,000 people killed, they say "Let's not play the blame game."

Try that line the next time you are in court on a charge of vehicular homicide.


9/11: The Spy Agency That Had No Spies


There was another funny little thing that happened on the way to 9/11. The CIA pointed out that in the Middle East where the 9/11 attack came from and where American troops were sent to fight, they didn't have any spies.

Having accomplished this feat, they got promotions.

You see, Senator Torricelli of New Jersey had gotten legislation passed restricting American intelligence agents from using any contacts that weren't squeaky clean. That is exactly like saying policemen can't use any informants who have a police record.

I have no idea what Yuppie, Old Hippy, Politically Correct fad Torricelli's insanity came out of, but it crippled any attempts to get informer networks going. Any agent who wanted to deal with anybody who wasn't squeaky clean had to give his informant's name and all the particulars to bureaucrats in Washington, DC and get permission.

Since nobody out in the field was certifiably insane, no one did that.

The fact that we had no intelligence at all on the ground was largely the personal responsibility of Senator Torricelli and his Yuppie fad. This was mentioned once or twice and then totally forgotten.

I haven't forgotten. It helped get three thousand Americans killed in the Twin Towers and many more in the field later on.

This assault on the CIA hit its peak in the 1970s with the hearings held by Senator Church of Idaho. So Jimmy Carter's CIA Director, Stansfield Turner, decided to move from dirty old informants to high tech.

Turner had been an admiral, so Reagan and Bush and Clinton and the second Bush and all the guys who later let 9/11 happen thought he was great. So this business of going from grubby old informants to high tech went right on.

After 9/11, everybody suddenly discovered that the CIA, America's spy agency, had no spies on the ground.

Isn't that cute?

If you don't think that's cute, then you may get mad about it.

And getting mad about it would be "playing the blame game," right?


9/11: Political Correctness has Consequences


Leftists have gone virtually unchallenged for forty years. They have mercilessly attacked whites, Christians, Southerners, and anyone else who was in their way. This attack has been openly promoted and encouraged by the major media, Hollywood, and the Democratic Party, and with the silent acquiescence of the Republican Party and respectable conservatives.

This is not news. Every American with half a brain knows it. Even Europeans know this, whether or not they will admit it. Every one on earth that matters knows it.

Guess what gang - "Everyone on earth" includes the perpetrators of the 9/11 attacks.

Do you think that outsiders watching the left tear at the heart and soul of America, the white Christian majority that founded the country and keeps it running, don't see the opportunities this leftist assault presents them?

Any cop can tell you that muggers can spot a victim a block away. They will tell you that a criminal can sense a victim the same way that a horse can sense fear in a rider.

Does it take a CIA agent to tell you that people sharp enough to pull off the 9/11 attacks can sense these things as well?

Do you think that when a liberal makes another standard "hate whitey" appeal and has respectable conservatives climbing on top of each other to talk about what a patriotic, well meaning American he is, that others may get a different message?

Do you think that intelligence agents don't know who signs their checks? That when the liberals and respectable conservatives who pay their salaries rail endlessly about "evil whitey", that these agencies don't know they can score brownie points by telling scary stories about "religious nuts" in Waco, Texas, or "dangerous white separatists" in the middle nowhere in Idaho?

Since these threats are made up to appease liberal fantasies and avoid real work, it looks like these agencies are doing their jobs. Look how safe we have been kept from white American Christians!

9/11 caught these agencies with their pants down. No one seemed to think about what might be going on in the real world. Political Correctness does have its consequences. But don't expect to hear about them from a respectable conservative. "We don't want to play the blame game."

Only Ole Bob will play the blame game.
